I really wanted this shoe but I was unable to find a source to buy it from. I couldn't even find out how much it costs. I finally settled for a pair of Cliffs by Puma. Oh well, as soon as I find something I like they go and change everything.

I can rate these shoes on comfort, grip, and sleekness of design. They are very comfortable, I didn't buy them to fit like a climbing shoe like a friend of mine who did and wound up blowing out the toe!! They are very grippy on most terrain but of course are great on rock. They have a nice sharp edge and narrow design for great placements in tight places and skinny ridges. I've had these shoes for three years and can attest to their strength though, I love them too much to thrash on consistently! I'm not sure that Kayland even makes this model anymore.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Who better to design approach shoes than Italian climbing experts at Kayland... with asymmetrical fit for better energy transfer, premium suede uppers, and breathable lining. Your feet will love the grippy Vibram? sole, removable insole, cushioned footbed, and lacing that starts at the toe for a custom fit. 2 lb. pr. <b>Closeouts</b>. Italy.
